Three Current Obsessions
Yes, I know I just posted yesterday, but I'm on a roll here, so work with me. Today is Three on Thursday, and I have my List of Three ready for you.
I don't know if any of you become obsessed with random things, but I sure do. Daily. Hourly. Some stick around, and some disappear as soon as I see cake or shiny things. Here are three current things.
1. This one has stuck around for a week so far. I saw a Chinese Money Plant on Claudia's blog the other day, and now I long to have one. I love house plants, and have always at a minimum had a bunch of African violets. That is, until the Koodle joined the family. He didn't eat them, just enjoyed knocking them off the plant stand enough times they just gave up and died. So then I bought some succulents, since they didn't require being *right* in the sunshine all of the time. Well, apparently our house has bad plant juju now, period, because they were almost immediately dead. Even after I had been guaranteed that it was nearly impossible to kill them. Anyway, apparently the aforementioned plant is hard to find, and are then expensive when you do find it, so I guess it's just as well.
The Koodle is why we can't have nice things. Sigh.
2. Hot apple cider. I like cold apple cider, but I LOVE hot apple cider with cinnamon. However, cider buying is tricky in our house. We don't drink the big jugs fast enough before they spoil, and the small jugs are maybe only two hot mugs' worth, and are therefore gone almost immediately. Plus, even though it was wonderfully fall the past couple of days, it's supposed to be warm again for the next few, and I don't like hot apple cider when it's warm because FOR GOD'S SAKE IT'S A COLD WEATHER DRINK AND IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE FALL.
3. Halloween decorations. We have some, but won't be putting 99% of them out this year and as a result, I want all of them that I see! Right now, our house is still in It-Looks-Like-We're-Moving-But-We're-Not mode as a result of one of The Tim's many projects. There is not currently anywhere to put out the decorations we do have, and to be perfectly honest, I can't even find where they currently are in order to pull out even a few. We do have a pumpkin, and I bought a new little wooden decoration the other day at Target, but this year will be, for the most part, a non-decor holiday for us. And I'm not going to say anything to The Tim about any of his projects, because he always keeps his mouth shut about mine, bless him. But it sure is frustrating nonetheless!
What are you obsessed with these days? Surely there's something, right???
